Oh Giada, you inspire the Italian carb lover in me! I made this Pirate Pasta last week to celebrate Talk Like A Pirate Day and just had to share the delish recipe with you all since it was a huge hit with my son!
Total Time: 35 mins, makes 4-6 servins!
Ingredients: Kosher Salt, 1 Pound Penne (I used whole wheat), 1 c grated Pecorino romano cheese, 1/4 c extra virgin olive oil, 8 ounces mushrooms sliced, 2 cloves of garlic-peeled and left whole, Fresh ground pepper, 1/2 c med green olives (make sure they are pitted and cut in half), 1/4 c tomato paste/sauce, 2 talespoons of capers (drain and rinse first), 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, 10 ozs of tuna (use the kind you prefer), 1/2 c low sodium chicken broth, 1/2 c chopped fresh basil.
